How Much I Want To Tell You

How much I want to tell you, friend, Christ’s love has changed my heart
With your non judgemental loving soul I never want to part
I know the pain you often bear that I can’t take away
It wrenches through the heart of me most every night and day
Our God is love; He weeps with us and longs to take us Home
But we wander aimless through our times instead of kneeling at the Throne
There’s oh so much to say and do when I would hold you near
I soon grow tired when age claims strength. I’m little use I fear.

I could borrow wings from strengthened owls to fly both near and far
To catch a tear or stroke your head to be close to where you are
Your time and strength for other’s need will work alongside mine
While angels watch with eagerness to fly to you one more time.
And so too slowly sometimes the sands of time move on
Until one day we notice that time is almost gone
Our love will hold and linger, our memories won't fade
The love first came through Jesus Christ then History was made.

The Daydream Little Comfort Return to Paradise

Choose Now This Day

You will never leave us, nor will You forsake us
In the shadow of the cross is where I’d make my home.
My pain is your pain Lord, You Who took the blame, Lord
Wash me in the blood now, be my shelter if I roam.

Listen to the good news those who think they should choose
What they make of their life if Christ should call you home?
Will you let Him stand alone here, the God of Heaven Who holds you dear
Longing for your company as He guides you to his Home.

The clock of Life will stop one day when Christ returns to make His claim
And those written in the book of Life will join Him in the sky
Too late to cry, “But wait, but wait, I’m ready now, I did hesitate
Another chance, have mercy now on a sinner such a I.”
